What may be the expected effects of European integration on Portuguese regions, referring to the role of Community funding in public sub-national activity? The inclusion of Portuguese local and regional entities within the European context opens up new opportunities in a new administrative environment. This should influence the socio-political practices under which they usually operate. Significant consequences are also to be expected in the way they act, especially bearing in mind that Portugal is one of the countries that has benefited most from European regional policy. To what extent this has led to a modernization of the Portuguese political system, considering specifically the principles of transparency, subsidiarity and participation which are promoted by European discourse? These should lead to an enhanced role of territorial forces in the decision-making processes. Quels impacts peut-on attendre de la construction européenne dans les régions portugaises, notamment en ce qui concerne le rôle des fonds communautaires dans l'activité politique subnationale ? L'insertion d'acteurs territoriaux portugais dans le contexte européen les met en contact avec de nouvelles opportunités et référentiels de gouvernance, qui ont des répercussions dans leurs pratiques socio-politiques habituelles. On peut donc s'attendre à des effets non négligeables dans leur manière d'agir, surtout si l'on tient compte du fait que le Portugal est un des pays européens les plus fortement marqués par la politique régionale communautaire. Dans quelle mesure cette circonstance mène-t-elle le système politique portugais à se moderniser, selon les règles de transparence, subsidiarité et participation promues par les normes européennes, notamment en ce qui concerne le respect du rôle des forces territoriales dans les processus de décision ? Quais os impactos esperáveis da construção eu ropeia nas regiões portuguesas, tendo em conta, nomeadamente, o papel dos fundos comunitários na actividade política sub-nacional ? A inserção das figuras territoriais portuguesas no contexto europeu mete-as em contacto com novas oportunidades e referenciais governativos, os quais deverão repercutir-se nas suas práticas socio-políticas habituais. Reflexos importantes serão pois de prever na sua actuação. Sobretudo, se se tiver em mente que Portugal é um dos países fortemente tocados pela política regional comunitária. Discute-se aqui em que medida essa circunstância levou o sistema político português a modernizar-se, seguindo as regras de transparência, subsidariedade e participação promovidas pela norma europeia, mormente no que diz respeito ao papel das forças territoriais nos seus processos de decisão.
